    All of these concepts are developed through experiences. I think in middle school, we are too quick to put the manipulatives away, or assume that they played with blocks and Legos in elementary, they don’t need them any more. I teach in a high poverty school, where many of my students are lacking in childhood experiences that most of us take for granted.

    I want to provide my students with experiences, then explicitly link them to mathematical thinking.
